What Is the Format of the Cricket World Cup?

The format of the Cricket World Cup has never been constant in the years that the competition has been around. In fact, the format was first changed from the original in 1992—barely 20 years from the first edition of the championship in 1975.

However, the 2023 edition of the championship is going to use the “league format”. Thus, the tournament is going to be played in a round-robin format followed by 2 knockout rounds. 10 nations are going to participate in the next edition of the championship.

Moreover, a total of 48 matches are to be played in the 2023 edition of the championship. Thus, the championship will have all 10 nations playing each other with the 4 best teams then progressing to 2 semi-finals. The 2 winners then go to the tournament final.

Following the customary coin-toss to decide who bats first, each side has 50 overs of 6 balls to amass the largest score. After this upcoming edition, however, the format is going to change once again. The championship will be reverting to the Super Sixes format.

How Do Countries Qualify for the Tournament?

The World Cup is open to all members of the ICC. This means that 32 countries are going to take part in the qualification stage of the championship. However, the format of the qualification process will be different for this edition.

Rather than teams automatically qualifying depending on their rank, they are distributed into 3 different leagues. These leagues are the Super League, the League 2, and the Challenge League. The nations are to be distributed like so:

  • 13 nations go to the Super League;
  • 7 nations are sent to the League 2;
  • and 12 nations are going to the Challenge League.

Depending on how the nations fare in these leagues, they will either directly qualify in the championship, or qualify to supplementary qualifying tournaments. Through these supplementary tournaments, nations can also potentially qualify to the championship.

At the same time, a promotion and relegation system is in place between these leagues. Finally, since this league system is the first of its kind, the nations were sorted according to their ICC and ODI ranks, and their rank from the 2017-2019 ICC World Cricket League.

When & Where Will the 2023 Cricket World Cup Take Place?

The 13th edition of the men’s Cricket World Cup is scheduled to be hosted by India from October to the 26th of November, 2023. The 2023 championship will be the very first time that the competition is held solely in India.

The championship was originally set to be played between 9th February and 26th March but it had to be postponed. Finally, the actual matches have yet to be announced. Thus, do check this page when the dates of the championship are closer.

Who Are the Favourites to Win the Cricket World Cup?

With so many excellent nations participating in the Cricket World Cup, you know that the competition will be tight. However, a number of teams nearly always appear to be the favourites of the championship years ahead of the actual tournament.

First of which is the Indian team. The Men in Blue can easily be considered one of the best teams on the planet. And it’s no wonder, considering the cultural investment that India has in the sport! Next up there is the English team.

It should come as no surprise that England is considered one of the top favourites of the championship, especially since they basically invented the sport. However, do bear in mind that they have only taken home the prestigious championship once, in 2019.

The Australian team also appears as one of the favourites for the championship. In fact, the Aussie team is one of the best in the entirety of the sport, especially when you consider how many times they have won the championship.

Last but not least, there is New Zealand’s national team which also appears as one of our top favourites. This comes on top of their recent success in the competition, where they were the runners-up for 2 consecutive years—that is, in 2015 and 2019.

It is worth bearing in mind that as the 2023 edition of the tournament is a relatively long time in the future, these odds are likely to change. So for the very latest odds on the championship as well as a wealth of fantastic offers, be sure to pay Betiton™ a visit!

What Are Cricket World Cup Betting Odds?

Odds are the numbers that you’ll see next to each market that we provide on the Cricket World Cup. These numbers are important for a couple of reasons: firstly, they tell you how much money you can receive if the bet you made is successful.

Secondly, they also tell you the probability of the bet actually being a winner. Thus, odds are extremely helpful when choosing which wagers you should play. This is why it’s imperative that you can understand what these numbers tell you.

Understanding the Different Odds Formats

The first step in understanding odds is knowing that they come in 3 different formats. These formats are: decimal, fractional, and American. Whilst these formats may seem quite different, in reality there are only 2 main differences between them.

The first difference is where these formats happen to be used the most. The second one is how they represent the odds. Other than these differences, these formats are completely interchangeable. Thus, using one over the other is merely a matter of a preference.

Finally, each format has its own way of being understood. We have taken it upon ourselves to provide you with a detailed guide on how to understand the different odds formats, which you can find by clicking on the hyperlink.
